Two of the tech house scene's biggest players and a classic soul vocal collide on another Do Not Sleep banger.
When two experts of the big room tech-house world team up for an EP, you know it is going to be fire. The lead track from the ‘Back To The Future’ EP from Steve Lawler and Darius Syrossian, on Syrossian’s Do Not Sleep imprint, is doing extensive damage on the world’s bigger tech house floors currently. Steve’s hand in the track is immediately felt with the rolling toms, conga line and pounding kick drums and when the unmistakable Marlena Shaw’s ‘Women Of The Ghetto’ vocal first makes an appearance, it is clear that this is going to be a big track
Clever looping of Shaw’s sultry tones throughout the track, especially during the main breakdown, try a littler harder than a straight up ‘cut and shut’ edit and the boomy Reese Bassline ensures it has all the necessary ingredients of a big room house track. With the massive drop coming straight out of Darius’s Do Not Sleep party handbook, 'Back To The Future' will be devastating in the right hands. 'We Like to Jam' is a more tooly offering and Max Chapman turns in suitably large remix to complete the EP and adds a bit more sub bass and groove to the original.
